There are many resources and approaches available to support both staff and families. These include mindfulness, Facebook groups, other support groups and so on. This workstream will focus more specifically on how we can support those who are impacted by the emotional and stressful situations that arise in relation to complex care – which includes conflict, ethical challenges, serious incidents and bereavement. The group is undertaking the following activities:
- Finding out what published literature is available in this area.
- Assessing whether we should look in more detail at the needs of specific staff groups.
- Agreeing an approach to sharing good practice examples
- Considering whether there are any approaches which could / should be scaled up more broadly or at a national level.
